Adobe Artist in Residence Program

Artist in Residence

A partnership to elevate emerging artists in web3

The Meta Angels and Adobe Artist in Residence Program elevates an emerging NFT artist each month by providing them with financial support, Adobe’s tools, and a platform from which to share their work.

Elevating creativity with Adobe

We are thrilled to have Adobe as our partner for this Artist in Residence program, giving us the opportunity to work with a global brand that has – for decades – been a leading innovator at the intersection of creativity and technology.

About the Program

Elevating Artists

With support, we’ll be investing in the success of emerging, diverse artists who are underrepresented in NFTs – leveraging the power of NFTs to bring a global audience to artists who might not otherwise have a channel for reaching collectors.

Art Collection

We’ll be expanding upon the breathtaking art that Aslan Ruby created by delivering 12 monthly limited edition airdrops by an Artist in Residence over a year, so owners of Meta Angels can expand their collections.

Building Community

We’ll be bringing the Meta Angels community into the Artist-in-Residence selection process through the launch of our first Meta Angels Council. If you are in the Arts Council, we lean on you every month to help us choose the next emerging artist to amplify and grace the wallets of our holders with a new piece of art.

Celebrating a Year of Uplifting Creators in Web3

Each month, in partnership with Adobe, we selected an emerging artist and commissioned an original artwork to distribute to holders of Meta Angels and HUG NFTs. A way to bring more incredible talent to the wallets of our holders, we were inspired by the dedication and creativity of each of our artists. Our last artist in residence was in May of 2023 and we encourage you to explore and celebrate each of our creators below.
